Fellow miners,

this is the build I use to image nvOC and rxOC USB keys.  I am providing it to the community 100% free, with no fees.

ocFACTORY is a customized Ubuntu 16.04 build which is ultra portable and should work with any computer (tell me if it doesn't work with yours).

ocFACTORY is easy-to-use and includes the nvOC_v0017 and rxOC_v0012 images.

Current Version: v0011

 
Change Log:

v0011 (initial release)


If you don't have an imaging program already download HDDRawCopy (Link)

Or get etcher for Mac / Linux / Windows Link

v0011 zip should extract on OSX / *nix / Windows  Wink

v0011 is 62.9gb

Please Note: ensure your build PC has at least 90gb of free space before downloading. This is the total space the zip + extracted img will take up.



ocFACTORY_v0011 Google Drive Link use this image for all PCs



ocFACTORY_v0011 MEGA Link use this image for all PCs


The SHA256 hash (for the zip) is:
Quote
967ad90fe4d3dc30f9545cfa86e1b3ea3857832e49a84524a42d39712d858505

To verify the downloaded zip see this post Link



ENSURE THAT YOU unzip the image BEFORE YOU IMAGE YOUR USB  Wink


Use HDDRawCopy or etcher to image the extracted img file to the 64gb or larger SSD or USB ( see this guide for an HDDRawCopy walkthru )


I recommend imaging to a sata or m2 SSD; as it will most likely be able to create images 40% faster than if you use a USB key.


At boot etcher will launch automatically.

ocFACTORY includes plusCPU miner and the openSSH client.  It can be used as a control PC for all your rigs.  At boot a bash script called cmd will launch in the guake terminal.  (cmd is located in the /home directory.)

I will periodically update cmd with more features.  Wink

If you are using ocFACTORY as a control PC for your rigs I recommend using the gnome terminal for each SSH session (this is why I swapped the terminal uses).

When I finish the: monitor / push / update / dashboard app it will be optimized for ocFACTORY.

ocFACTORY uses the base Ubuntu driver.  You can increase the resolution by: selecting the ubuntu launcher at the top left and typing:

Code:
ad

select additional drivers

select the proprietary drivers for your pc.

apply the changes

reboot

the root password for ocFACTORY is:

    miner1

the SHA256 hash is:

Code:
967ad90fe4d3dc30f9545cfa86e1b3ea3857832e49a84524a42d39712d858505


If you are using windows:


open a cmd prompt:

click the start button and type: 

Code:
cmd

then press enter:

type the following:

Code:
CertUtil -hashfile PATH_TO_IMAGE_ZIP_HERE SHA256

and press enter

if the result is:

Code:
967ad90fe4d3dc30f9545cfa86e1b3ea3857832e49a84524a42d39712d858505

then the ZIP_containing_the_image is good

Note: you can find the file path by right clicking the zip and selecting properties


If you are using linux:

open a terminal and enter the following:

Code:
sha256sum 'PATH_TO_IMAGE_ZIP_HERE'

and press enter

if the result is:
Code:
967ad90fe4d3dc30f9545cfa86e1b3ea3857832e49a84524a42d39712d858505

then the ZIP_containing_the_image is good

Note: you can also type sha256sum then drag the zip to the terminal window to add the absolute path without typing it.


If you are using OSX:

open a terminal and enter the following:

Code:
shasum -a 256 'PATH_TO_IMAGE_ZIP_HERE'

and press enter

if the result is:
Code:
967ad90fe4d3dc30f9545cfa86e1b3ea3857832e49a84524a42d39712d858505

then the ZIP_containing_the_image is good

Will this have to be reimaged every time a new verison comes out?

As I see a super coin as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions. ~philipma1957

ocFACTORY is intended to be a one time download.  The firefox has a link to the nvOC and rxOC OPs.  Future nvOC and rxOC releases can be downloaded direct on ocFACTORY.

Future ocFACTORY releases will be the OS only (no images included).  As ocFACTORY is not intended for rigs it should not require many if any changes to the system itself.


For this initial release; it is my hope that members will spam crypto;

this weekend in the US individuals with gather with family and friends.

ocFACTORY ( once imaged ) reduces the technical barrier to start mining

You can download the image, extract and image it to a 64gb or larger USB key or SSD

give that USB or SSD to a friend / family member / co-worker

and they can easily image nvOC and rxOC USB keys


btw thanks for showing me etcher; it is by far the simplest imaging program I have used.  Smiley

If you download and install the mega extension for Firefox or chrome; then select download in browser: it should work for free.

Unfortunately this did not work for me.  20% downloaded and then a box popped up saying I have to wait 5 hours to continue.  Is there anywhere else I can download this to try?  I would certainly pay for this, I would just rather you get the money than mega.
 
Thanks

I didn't realize MEGA was so bad with large files.  I thought it would be better to use MEGA for this; as members would be able to pause the download if needed. 

I will upload the image to Google Drive.  This will take a while; I'll link the zip when its done.

hi,
is this intended to create a custom image? (ie a modded nvOC?)
or is it just a SO with the right tools and nvOC image to facilitate the flashing process?

I guess its the second one but the first one would be awesome Tongue

It is the second.

You can mod nvOC if you want; its linux, you can do almost anything with it.

I don't currently have enough time to maintain this in addition to nvOC / rxOC so it is EOL until I have more time.

Hi there

Any chance someone can help me to get started?
Reward if so: I will mine for you for a while.

I have a Z270 motherboard with 7 slots and one M.2 - so I was hoping to have 8 GTX 1070 connected to this motherboard.

as the rig will be placed in a basement I will like to be able to remote it from my home (teamviewer? )
Ubunto?
Right now I am using nicehash miner, and if this is the best setup then please tell me.
best regards
